My Favorite Pet
I am taking this opportunity to comment on an issue that is important to me. As a retired nurse I have seen the pain, both physical and emotional that loneliness brings to the life of the elderly. I am no young chicken myself, but I am not lonely because I still have family around me ... and I have a wonderful dog and three cats. But many are not so lucky and could thrive off of the love of a pet. In my picture "Friends for Life" need not be taken as a span of time, but, in fact, a matter of survival. I am in hope of stimulating some interest. Look around you ... do you know someone who could benefit from the unconditional love of a furry or feathered companion?
